Uni Dropouts
« on: May 06, 2006, 07:24:37 AM »
After recently deciding to drop out of uni for the 3rd time (second course), I was curious as to how many of you have dropped out and how many attempts at uni it took to figure out what you actually wanted to do? Or am I the only one that can't get his shit together?

I tried a science degree twice where I failed 1st semester, so put it off for 6 months, then tried it again and passed, then failed 2nd semester so canned that one for good. Then I started nursing last year and made it into 3rd semester. I got to my first real prac experience and thought that cleaning up shitty arses and having to care for people and organise a million things at once was not really my thing.

How about youz cunts? There must be plenty of uni dropouts, given the demographic. :P ;D

Ah.

Edit: I have not had to drop out, although I don't intend on being a teacher forever.

I cruised through fairly well. But I knew that what I was doing was right for me. I think thats the key.

Regards.

Failed a couple of units here and there, but got through my 3-year degree in 4 years. *shrugs* Doing post-grad stuff now. Looking forward to earning money next year. (hooray for an income!!)

I dropped out of Curtin in semester 4 of my nursing degree. I couldnt stand wiping peoples asses and looking after elderly people which make up the majority of hospital patients.
I was more interested in the science side of things.

how many of you have dropped out

^ Here here.

I was training to be a secondary school mathematics teacher, but in the end I left and settled for working in a music store.

best decision I ever made :)

eww. i think wipin sum wrinkly old persons ass would be better than wipin some young guys, at least old people are usually too drugged up or hav demensia and so dont remember or dont care.

Also 2nd year 1st semester/3rd semester :P

I don't really care that much about it, its just going through the motions. I have no problem with the course, I'm just lazy and can't be fucked doing anything. Only failed the one unit so far.  :D

I used to think that failing units/changing was really bad, but thne realised everyone fucks around with uni so much deferring/failing/changing/dropping out, so felt less guilty and decided to try less.  8)

A-fucking-men.

Though after my spell of failing, i've suddenly started doing real well. More HD's in a semester than I think I can handle :O
